Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night is the night before Twelfth Day. Odd, isn’t it? Jan. 5 is when all the Christmas decorations should be removed so as not to bring bad luck upon the home. If they’re not removed by Twelfth Night, tradition dictates they should stay up all year. Twelfth Night, of course, marks the visit of the Three Wise Men to the infant Jesus in the church’s calendar, but this is often overshadowed by all the celebrations for Christmas Day itself.
